A few weeks ago, I shared some colourful wedding cake ideas, to show that luxury and stylish cakes don’t always have to use a pared back palette. Today, however, I want to look at some elegant, sophisticated, and all-white luxury wedding cakes. In the same way luxury wedding cakes don’t have to use soft colours, they also don’t have to use colour at all. In fact, when expertly designed and created by a professional, all-white wedding cakes can provide a stand-out and exceptional display.
Though all-white cakes can suit any season, I adore when they are chosen for a winter wedding…especially if sparkle is involved. There is an enchanting quality to a luxury all-white design. It comes from the careful use of textures, florals, and other details. So, it seems appropriate to share some ideas as we enjoy the most magical time of year.
For some, the suggestion of a simple, all-white wedding cake with just three white sugar flowers and some white foliage, might sound dull or lacklustre…but they obviously haven’t seen this exquisite example! With its flawless clean lines and large statement blooms, its nothing short of contemporary perfection.
If your venue is very light and modern, then this simple yet stunning all-white wedding cake design would fit in beautifully. Alternatively, if your wedding venue is more classic in style, perhaps with lots of decadent details and interesting interiors, then this cake could help bring a touch of stylish luxe to your day – balancing out the more traditional surroundings.
I love taking inspiration from fashion. From trend-led designs to luxurious materials, and from beautiful details to flawless lines. I especially love couture textures…and they work so well in icing and wafer paper – adding artistic interest to wedding cakes, and so much depth to a design.
This all-white, couture style wedding cake is an excellent example of fashion paired with cake design. Its detailed ruffles and oversized floral details create a romantic, contemporary and, almost fairy-tale, dress-like quality.
An all-white wedding cake can still have a touch of pearlescent or silvery shimmer. It can even be covered top to toe in sophisticated sparkle, like this stylish design.
There is a fine line when trying to achieve exceptional luxury using edible sparkles. In the wrong hands you can end up with a wedding cake far from stylish but, as an award-winning cake designer, I understand the balance needed in a design. I always ensure a cake stands out for the right reasons. Just look at this all-white design, with its full and blousy florals and luxurious shimmer, as an example.
You don’t have to stop at a single wedding cake. You can give your guests the ultimate experience of luxury by providing an all-white dessert table.
Keeping your tiered wedding cake as the focus, I can create a selection of delectable treats to complete the display. I can incorporate interesting and delicate, all-white details for the different items. Glass and white display stands can be used to complement the overall concept, and white ribbon can be used as a finishing touch.
Forget dreaming of a white Christmas, if this post has inspired thoughts of an all- white wedding cake for your special day, then I’d love to hear from you. Why not get in touch to book a consultation, and we can have a lovely chat over a cuppa?
